Rubbish design, the cap doesn't close

It would've been nice for the red top cap to also fit the 10 oz bottle.

This is NOT a functional design. It allows the soy sauce to CONSTANTLY smell up the room it is in! Who wants a house that smells like fermented ANYTHING?! And if you keep the stuff refrigerated, it smells up your fridge. It needs to be sealed! FAIL! And the readers who don't care about this fail. Do you want fermented soy-smelling soap? Bed sheets? No? Then why do you want your kitchen and adjoining rooms to slowly but surely get the stink?

I like the 1L bottles as well, because they contain 1L of most delicious soy sauce.

Can't believe it took 3 years to design, but yeah, I think it is a great bottle. :-)

I grew up with that bottle but once for 2 years we didn't have one which made us unhappy since the replacement was bad. When we got a new one of these, I was happy with my soy sauce again

Design makes a difference: Kenji Ekuan wanted to convey happiness in the enduring, very popular design of the Kikkoman soy sauce bottle, especially after having witnessed (and survived) the devastation of the atomic bomb on his hometown Hiroshima.

Of all the questions about the design of the soy sauce, they didn't even touch the one I seeked an answer to most. Why the two openings?!

The best soysauce

It's nice to see that something good inadvertently came out of the aftermath of the horrific US terrorist attack on Japan; that one diabolical act that most US Americans constantly defend while simultaneously saying "9/11 went too far, bro".

Okay but everytime you use it then put it down there's soy sauce that drips down from it and you have to clean it up every time

Also, If you plug one spout with your finger as your pour out the other, you can control the flow of sauce onto your food/ bowl

ShroomWalrus (6 месяцев назад)
It's easy to say that many decades after it's already familiar, but it's hard to design something that just works really well. Few would come up with this design if it wasn't already invented.

Kikkoman is also the best soy sauce ever made.
gang gang (4 месяца назад)
There r a lot of soy sauce on the market that have more flavor, color so I wouldn’t say kikkoman soy sauce it’s the best. But tastes differs from one person to another
Mirek Fe (6 месяцев назад)
I beg to differ. Yamasa makes the best Japanese soy sauce.

Why would you pronounce Hiroshima like that? Why do Americans always guess instead of just looking it up. It is the simplest thing. You are journalists. This was otherwise researched I assume. Ridiculous.
TissuePaper (6 месяцев назад)
Janet Take the stick out of your ass. Thank you. Now that you're a little more comfortable, you might open your mind a little. Why don't you go yell at every person in Japan who mispronounces English words because it's easier to say it wrong? I don't know any Japanese, but I can give you plenty of examples of transvocalization in Chinese. 伊妹儿 (yi meir) : "e-mail" 酷 (ku) : "cool" 汉堡包 (hanbaobao) : "hamburger" 比萨饼 (bisa bing) : "pizza" This happens in all languages.
pinkywinky222 (6 месяцев назад)
Japanese news reporters/journalists always pronounce English-named places as how they would usually say it. For example Rosu Anjiresu for Los Angeles. I don’t see any Americans or Japanese complaining about that. And the way this person pronounced it wasn’t that far off and as a person living in Hiroshima presently I didn’t mind it at all. We just have to accept that there are limits to speaking a language not your own and proper pronounciation of Japanese words is not that easy to master.
TheMistLink (6 месяцев назад)
Jara I was referring to the rules of pronunciation each language has
DrPhilFurry (6 месяцев назад)
TheMistLink What ‘rule’ defines how Hiroshima is pronounced?
The Seven Year Twitch (6 месяцев назад)
JanetFunkYeah I can see where you're coming from but there are tons of English words that the Japanese and other countries have adapted to follow the rules of their own language. Ex.Makudonarudo= McDonald's Aisu kurīmu= ice cream It happens with globalization, cultural anthropologists call it transvocalization. In Japanese specificlly it's called gairaigo.

legice (6 месяцев назад)
the fact that a bottle of sauce took so long to design, from the anti drip, grip, size, feel, fall protection... this just proves how important design is and I shad a happy tear just there =)
lollycopter (6 месяцев назад)
If you just pour, these bottles *do* drip (after you stand them up again). However, the trick to reducing that is to place your finger on one end of the lid to control the flow. This should keep everything pretty tidy.
themonkeyhand (6 месяцев назад)
I was disappointed that the lid wasn't even really mentioned.
